More Zucchini!!

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Just pick these up from the garden. These things grow and grow fast! I'll be looking for recipes for zucchini. I like zucchini bread and will fry zucchinis to see if the king (Zeke) will like that. The little prince and I had a great walk this morning. No one knows how long the track is in our city's park but I think I'll go with 1.5 miles cause that's what the website does. Every time I go measure it the pedometer runs out of battery... I'll be more prepared next time.
I've been feeling great since I decided not to feel guilty and condemned because of not having dropped more weight after the little prince's birth. Good thing he's almost 3 months and not 3 years and I still have time. I thought about doing crazy stuff like the liquid diet but that would go against everything I believe. It would be selfish too because if I have bad side effects for doing something so radical with my body my little prince and the king have to fend for themselves. I decided to focus on God's love and acceptance for me and do this the right way. Yep, that's the plan. I just decided I needed peace. Without peace the pounds that leave quickly always return with a vengeance - I'd know about it, I've lost 7 pounds in one week before in the starvation diet, which is no fun at all.
On other news, I started to run again this morning. That felt awesome. I was more tired because I'm 40 pounds heavier than when I finished my first 5K in October but it was as if my body was feeling like its old self. I look forward to being able to run 5 miles and more as I was doing before. It just takes determination and getting out there.
The little prince has been sleeping for 10 whole hours a night. Glory be to God because it was nothing we did, he just started sleeping more and we just make sure he starts his 10 hours at a good time. God is soo good!
A great day everyone. Please remember that feeling guilt and condemnation for carrying extra pounds doesn't come from God because God is love and He loves you. He does want you to be healthy but not by making you feel miserable. Think about what you are thinking today.
